From Souvenir of Cork & Killarney: with 19 illustrations, complete with letterpress. Dublin and Belfast: Eason & Son Ltd., (n.d.)

Extract from the above publication:

"St Patrick's Bridge spans the River Lee at its northern branch, [the bridge] has a width of about 60 feet and is, therefore, wider than any bridge over the Thames with the exception of Westminster.  The original bridge, built in 17[89], was destroyed by a flood in 18[53] and was replaced by the present bridge completed in 18[59]."
